I am a tremendous fan of Irish literature. To be fair, I am probably unusually obsessed with Irish murder mysteries. But I have to insist that it is not the Irishness of the stories as much as it is the quality of the writing. I have found a number of authors who seem to have grasped the concept that a story can be both great fun and great art at the same time. Here is a brief discussion of another one of my favorites among this set. Adrian McKinty has written a number of books, tragic, beautiful, humorous as well as mysterious and complex. He’s terrific and i can’t wait to read the next one. Click on the title above and take a look at what Declan Burke has to say about the soon to be released The Sun is God.
